The Point of No Return

This is the point where it’s closer to finish than it is to go back to the beginning.

It’s like walking a 3 mile path.  Once you’re past the ½ way mark, you may as well finish.

Well I have to confess, I have a very deep fear.  After some serious soul searching, I finally realize exactly what I’m afraid of…I’m afraid of succeeding.  Here’s a quote that perfectly defines my fear.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson

Here’s another famous quote by a woman I admire, Joyce Meyer.  She says, “Do it afraid”.  Of all the things I’ve heard Joyce Meyer say, this is the one I remember the most.  Second to that is “to always put away your shopping cart” (teehee).

But now I’m at the point of no return.  I’m past the 1/2 way mark so I’m doing it afraid.  I’m launching the blog.  I’m finishing the book.  I’m starting the business.  I’m declaring to the world that my little light will shine.  My SON-light will shine.  It’s time for the glory of God that is within me to manifest.  I won’t hold back any longer.

“Go get it.  Go get your blessing.  It’s your time!”  Those lines are from one of my favorite Mary Mary songs.

So I claim it.  It’s my time.

And it’s your time too.  Maybe it’s something you’ve tried and you failed.  Are you afraid of it still?  What is it your time for?  Are you shying away from it? What is it your season to do?  Where are you to shine?  Share it with me.  Share it with the world.  Leave a comment and let the world know how brilliant, gorgeous, talented, wonderful and fabulous you are.  Your comment might inspire someone else to their own personal level of greatness.  Be well, my friends. Be well.

  1. Thank you for this!!! This resonates deeply for me. This is something that needed to be said. Especially for HIS children who want to shine for him.

  2. I’m reminded of the children’s nursery song, “this little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine!” We all are a light unto the world, each with our own set of gifts and talents, but we hide that light out of fear – False Evidence Appearing Real. It really isn’t real but our minds have convinced us otherwise…especially the fear of failure! There is no fear in failing because success can only come after numerous attempts of failing. The key is to not give up!!!

    “Do it afraid” is also one of my favorite Joyce Meyer sayings! I so admire you for stepping out on faith to pursue your purpose in writing.

    God bless you and this blog!!

  3. I ( as usual ) am so proud of and inspired by you. This blog is so positive and I can’t wait to read more of your thoughts.
